Low Carb Flax Pancakes

I love me some pancakes! Yesterday I made up a batch of these pancakes to freeze for quickie breakfasts. At the moment I am lowering my carb intake – not massively, just watching how many I eat as I am trying to shift my last bit of flab. I usually like a higher calorie breakfast, but this is surprisingly filling and satisfying!

Low Carb Flax Pancakes
1 serving

3 tbsp ground flax
2 egg whites
1 tsp milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a bowl – making sure the egg whites are well combined. Spoon the mixture into a pan sprayed with nonstick oil. I use 2 tablespoons per pancake, and it usually makes 3 and a half. Wait until bubbles start forming and pop, and then flip your pancake.
Serve with 1/2 cup of greek yogurt, fruit and some honey.
